Ceramic Horsehair Eagle with Shield

The ancient Indian tribes made this pottery to honor a favorite horse or to celebrate the birth of a horse. It is said that this pottery was first created when a long-haired maiden was removing hot pottery from her kiln and the wind blew her hair onto the hot pot and burned the hair into the pottery. The pottery is poured, then fired for a period of time after which it is removed from the kiln, and hair from the mane and the tail of a horse are applied to the hot pottery. The hair creates the dark lines and the smoke from the burning hair creates the cloudy grey areas. The pottery is then returned to the kiln where firing is completed. The pottery is removed from the kiln, etched and spray-glazed. Each piece of pottery comes with a certificate of authenticity which certifies that the pottery has been handcrafted by a Native American Indian artist. Our horsehair pottery is created in Arizona and New Mexico by several potters.
